World Boxing Federation (WBF) Intercontinental Light Heavyweight Champion Travis Hanshaw could be in for a tough time when he takes on Roy King in hist first title-defense on July 14 at Boyd County Community Center in Catlettsburg, Kentucky, USA.

Hanshaw, 13-1-1 (7), pitched a shut-out when winning the vacant title against David Markert last November, boxing excellently as he won every round on all three judges cards. He is expected to face much more resistance from King.

Roy King, born in New York but now residing in Johnson City in Tennessee, is 10-1-1 (5) since turning professional four years ago. A durable and aggressive campaigner, he has gone undefeated in his last nine outings and will surely come to upset the local favourite.

Also known as “The Rattlesnake”, 26-year-old Hanshaw from Ashland, only a few miles away from Catlettsburg, has developed a good following in Kentucky, and his return to the ring is eagerly anticipated by his followers. They can almost certainly expect an action-packed fight on July 14.

Travis Hanshaw´s defense of the World Boxing Federation (WBF) Intercontinental Light Heavyweight title against Roy King, likely his sternest test to date, will be the main event of a show promoted by East Coast Promotions.
